Celebrity Facial Hair Friday - Tom Petty
Super Bowl XLII was this past Sunday, and in keeping with the tradition of hiring tame half-time acts (since Justin, Janet, and her wardrobe malfunction), Tom Petty got the nod. Actually, I think first Springsteen got the nod, who gave them the nix. Then the Eagles got the nod, and they also gave the no. So it was third string Petty who graced the halftime platform and robotically sang his three most boring songs from Full Moon Fever, the jump-the-shark album of his discography.
Are you feeling my love?
American Girl is a good song. Thanks for singing that one. What about Refugee? Here Comes My Girl? The Waiting? Not commercial enough, apparently.
Whatever. Tom Petty is old. And he's grown a ridiculous beard to try to mask it. But I know he hasn't written a decent song since 1989. That beard ain't fooling me.
Hey Tom - Don't Come Around Here No More.
(Yes I'm angry the Pats didn't win.)

You are obviously a fricken moron. Tom Petty is a master song-crafter who has written more musically/lyrically viable material up to and including his most recent album. Petty wipes the floor with the crapola Eagles and Springsteen. His musical importance will be felt and acknowledged into perpetuity while you (and most likely whatever sonic feces you listen to) will wilt and decay in his wake. His admirers run the gamut from Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder, Axl Rose, older and younger audiences (I'm 28). Congrats man, you just made an authentic and palpable public idiot of yourself. Tom Petty is rock'n'roll.
